Forbes released its annual 30 Under 30 list on Tuesday, November 28, including celebs LattoIce Spice, and Angel Reese. The trio is part of 600 “go-getters” across 20 industries in the 13th iteration of the publication’s recognition round-up.

Other notables on this year’s list include Drew “Druski” Desbordes, Kendall Jenner, Jenna Ortega, Jordan E. Cooper, Keith Lee, Tia Adeola, Aiyana Ishmael, and Lamar Jackson.

Forbes’ list starts with online applications and submissions. Once received, outlet writers and editors sift through each. They also add their own candidates, contacting industry sources, insiders, global leaders, and Forbes 30 Under 30 alums for recommendations.

Past winners such as Taylor Swift, Winnie Harlow, Ayesha Curry, Lindsay Peoples, and Tory Burch have also served as judges. Up-and-coming talent across categories such as Art and Style, Social Media, Music, and Hollywood & Entertainment are featured. 

Big Latto Brings “Big Energy” to Forbes.

Latto started performing at age 10, became a household name after competing in The Rap Game, and has now leveraged these initial stepping stones for brand deals with Savage Fenty and TV appearances on Grown-ish. “My mind is working around the clock when it comes to me as a product because at the end of the day, we are products as artists,” Latto tells Forbes. She also told the publication she is launching a new business – soon.

Ice Spice is living by her own rules from TikTok and beyond.

By now, Ice Spice is a growing hip-hop and pop culture icon. So, all those who called her almost “meteoric rise” in the hip-hop industry a fluke can be quiet. The “Munch (Feelin U)” rapper gained popularity through viral social media beats and maintained her notoriety with chart-topping music, unexpected brand and artist collabs, and unapologetic, unique style. Ice Spice is one of the 2024 Grammy nominees for Best New Artist.

Fashion Designer Tia Adola is setting trends.

Tia Adeola’s designs, usually marked in feminity and ruffles, are worn by fashion ‘it girls’ and celebrities (such as Gigi Hadid, Blue Ivy, and SZA) alike. The Black woman designer is also a runway favorite during New York Fashion Week (NYFW).  A Parsons graduate, the then-aspirational designer artist started her self-named brand in her college dorm. Today, Tia Adeola’s garments are must-have fashion staples and statement-making pieces.

It’s a slam dunk! Angel Reese transcends sports.

Since leading her college team, Lousiana State University, to victory and making headlines for using a controversial hand gesture, Angel Reese has taken the sports, social media, fashion, and entertainment industries by storm. The Bayou Barbie’s recent initiatives include partnering with Reebok, Coach, Tampax, and Mielle Organics, and appearing in Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Issue.
